R.I.P. MCA

I am not  a huge rap/hip hop fan, but I have always quite enjoyed the Beastie Boys. They made it big while I was in high school so there’s really no surprise there. Sadly, Adam Yauch, aka MCA, passed away today. It is speculated that he lost his battle with cancer.

My favorite song of theirs was (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party). What was yours?

    The French release of the Beastie Boys "The Hip Sound from Way Out" is an awesome album. All instrumental and really quite melodic.

    Paul Revere. They remind me of hanging out with my fun rebellious sister in high school. Still, looking back on the lyrics, we were so naive to what any of it meant…a fun band. He will be missed by many. Sabotage's video was hilarious.
